The units of capacity in the metric system have the same prefixes as the units of length.

 

Conversion between units of capacity in the metric system involves moving the decimal point to the right or to the left. Listing the units in order from largest to smallest will indicate how many places to move the decimal point and in which direction.

kl   hl   dal   l   dl   cl   ml

To convert 824 ml to liters, first write the units in order from largest to smallest:

kl   hl   dal   l   dl   cl   ml

 
  • Converting ml to l requires moving 3 positions to the left.

  • Move the decimal point he same number of places and in the same direction

824 ml = 0.824 l
